NDRF Remain The Unforgettable Heroes In Disaster Prone Areas Of Indi
The National Disaster Response Force is a para-military organisation comprised of 15 battalions, each battalion having 1149 workers.
The task force, dedicated to search and rescue operations, came into being as a response to the natural disasters that struck the country like the Super Cyclone in Orissa in 1999, the earthquake in Gujarat in 2001 and the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004.
The government laid down the Disaster Management Act in 2005.
The act provided for the creation of the NDRF, which was specially constituted to rescue those affected by unnatural or natural disasters.
Any situation deemed a disaster can require the deployment of this force, from floods, landslides, collapsed buildings, cyclones or other natural disasters. In recent years, the government has become proactive and responsible for deploying these forces.
Often they are air-dropped into disaster zones where they work tirelessly to protect and defend the survivors.
